Got a Lot to Say? Twitter Rolling Out Tweetstorm Feature

Got a Lot to Say? Twitter Rolling Out Tweetstorm Feature

For instance, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in October used an eight-tweet thread to describe how the company will more aggressively enforce its rules about unwanted sexual advances, hate symbols, violent groups and tweets that glorify violence. Users will be able to tap a button while writing their tweet and link a second tweet to it and so forth. "Now, hundreds of thousands of threads are tweeted every day". Now it's doing that again by adding features that encourage self-reply chains and make it possible to publish such a thread all at once, rather than one tweet at a time.

With the new feature, users who create threads - stitching tweets together to tell a longer story - need no longer reply to previous tweets to do so.

Once users make a post, they can click the "+" icon to continue the thread. After a thread has already been published, new tweets can still be added by using the "Add another Tweet" button.

It's not the first time Twitter has turned to its community of users for new features. Additionally, it's now simpler to spot a thread - we've added an obvious "Show this thread" label. Twitter hopes its new feature can help organize things - and surely raise engagement in the process.

Price Target Overview of Finisar Corp. (NASDAQ:FNSR)
They expect this year's earnings to fall -41.04% year-over-year to $1.02, followed by 38.24% growth in the next year to $1.41. Northland Capital initiated Finisar Corporation (NASDAQ: FNSR ) on Tuesday, August 18 with "Market Perform" rating.

Threads can be challenging to create and also to follow. In the past, users may have turned to other social media platforms like Facebook to post longer information.

The company is also responding to users' concerns that by making tweetstorms more accessible to people, the Twitter timeline will become cluttered with longer posts that slow down users' ability to quickly scan through posts, the way you can now. "That's where this update to threads comes in".

The official rollout will happen over the next few weeks on Twitter.com, and through updates to the app on iOS and Android.
